help !! alsa


Make a directory to store the alsa source code in.



cd /usr/src
mkdir alsa
cd alsa
cp /downloads/alsa-* .
Now unzip and install the alsa-driver package



bunzip2 alsa-driver-xxx
tar -xf alsa-driver-xxx
cd alsa-driver-xxx
./configure --with-cards=via82xx --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install
./snddevices
The snddevices script sets the permissions for the devices it creates to root. You should
chmod a+rw /dev/dsp /dev/mixer /dev/sequencer /dev/midi Now unzip and install the alsa-lib package



cd ..
bunzip2 alsa-lib-xxx
tar -xf alsa-lib-xxx
cd alsa-lib-xxx
./configure;make;make install
Now unzip and install the alsa-utils package



cd ..
bunzip2 alsa-utils-xxx
tar -xf alsa-utils-xxx
cd alsa-utils-xxx
./configure;make;make install

.......................................i have don this

Now insert the modules into the kernel space.<--- w00t
modules is he talking about and were in the kernel to putt them....


this a now how to do ---> modprobe snd-via82xx;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss

check in /alsa-driver-0.9.1/utils directory and just run like root "alsaconf", it goint to detect your sound card and make all the modifications in your modules.conf file. good luck

If the analogy works here:
-what they mean with insert modules in kernel space is loading your souncard's alsa drivers with /sbin/insmod snd-via82xx, if the module name is wrong, check in the ALSA sound matrix website.
-you'll likely have dependency problems, "unresolved symbols" messages.
-with /sbin/insmod try to load the modules needed by the soundcard module, such as snd-pcm, snd-mixer and so on.
-if done correctly, try to load the sound module. (you can figure out what modules to load if you check after the "unresolved symbols" phrase)
-backup and edit /etc/modules.conf and change any entry that points to an old module to the name of the current module (which I guess is snd-via82xx). save.
I think that might do it, the sound is muted by default, I just can't remember the commands...sorry, but I'm sure I posted them some time ago. Hope it helped.

Oh, that's just what I expected, I'm really bad at explaining this kind of stuff...
See the phrase after ...unresolved symbols?
For expamle:
/lib/modules/2.4...snd-via82xx.0: unresolved symbol snd_pcm_new?
Well, all you have to do is try to load snd_pcm, and if you still get messages like the one above, just try to load the module(s) it depends on. Keep doing this until you don't receive any message, by then you should be able to load snd-via82xx.o.
OK, I hope it's clear enough...Bye
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Oh yeah, about those "invalid parameters"...let me check.
